Starlight, Starbright


New painting. Starlight, Starbright.... 24 x 30 on beech wood with 1.5 inch sides.
For sale. This actually looks much better in real life. Can't really see details of the sleeping kitty in this size.

Could even be part of a story....."and so little Seraphina finally slept. Her tired legs could carry her no farther. She curled up into a wee ball of fluff and quickly sank into a deep and welcome place. Sometime, late in the night, a beam of starlight found the little kitten and kept her safe while she dreamed of home...."

"for sale" where/how? I can't afford that gallery's prices (not that you're not worth it; I just can't pay what they ask). I'd be interested in buying this.

Sounds like you should write a childrens book...maybe a series even! The wanderings of the little kitten throughout Canada...the world! Lovely painting!

Tee said...

Ooh...great idea, Kerry.
